I've "rescued" an old photograph of Geo WARREN which was taken at the White
& Hugus Studio in Ottumwa, Iowa. The photograph appears to have been taken
in the 1880's with Geo appearing to be in his 20's or 30's at the time.

Researcher I was able to gather the following information regarding Geo and
George L. WARREN b. 5 Jan 1855 in Wapello Co. IA to parents Tilman or
Tillman WARREN and Elizabeth NYE
